    1. Thanks for your question!

      Unfortunately I don't know much about xapo. Does it allow to sign messages or to export a private key?

      If you are an advertiser, you can click "Start editing" button on your campaign's page and use a password given to you upon campaign creation.

      If you are a publisher, you can embed your change request into your page as a HTML comment and contact support (or just create a new ad unit).

    2. it said invalid signature
      i have followed the procedure correctly -__-

    3. Did you try to verify the signature yourself? Please make sure the message you sign is exact. E. g. a single extra space would invalidate the signature. If it doesn't work for you - please drop an email to contact@a-ads.com

    1. Hi, thanks foryour message. It looks like CryptoPay doesn't support bitcoin signatures, sorry about it. Good news is that our service doesn't require registration. You can use it without signing in with your bitcoin address. Just create an ad unit or an advertising campaign and you'll be given an automatically generated password to access it.

    2. Hey there Arsen. I tried connecting, I inputted my btc address and the password generated for me, but I got the message that it is not correct (I use the 'save as text file' option). So what to do now? :D

      Delete
    3. The password that has been generated for you can be used to access that particular ad unit or campaign. Just follow the link in the text file. If you have an ad unit then click the "Edit" tab. If you have a campaign then paste the password into the "Your secret key" field and click "Start editing".

    1. If you own your bitcoin address then you know its private key and can use it to sign a message.

      Otherwise you can sign in using a password given to you upon ad unit or campaign creation.

      You can use our service without signing in at all.

    1. I am not sure what you mean, but perhaps you could be interested to see this article: http://blog.anonymousads.com/2014/08/why-am-i-not-paid-for-clicks-what-is.html -- it explains why advertisers don't really need to worry about fake clicks.
